In the solo series, presented by Whitefire Theatre, the talented and vivacious Rachel Kiser is thrilled to share her personal sacred story with her audience, and quite honored to be opening this year’s series: Ma […]

The sign above Lancers pick-up station says it all: “If you’re not proud of what you prepared, don’t serve it.”

For more than three decades (and counting) I’ve eaten breakfast, lunch, and dinner at this family-owned and -operated dining landmark located at 697 N. Victory Blvd. in Burbank.

Sally Kellerman Is “Cool” at Vitello’s

By Kat Kramer Well folks, I went to Vitello’s Jazz and Supper Club in Studio City to check out the debut of actress/singer Sally Kellerman’s “Something’s Cool.” Kellerman, the Academy Award and Golden Globe Award nominated actress, who created the infamous role of Major Margaret “Hot Lips” O‘Houlihan in Robert Altman’s classic film M*A*S*H, is […]

Private Lives This ingeniously hilarious Noel Coward comedy, written and first run in London in 1930, is a stylish and funfilled “laugh a minute” gem!

Porsche’s Tradition Continues

Porsche’s Tradition Continues

There’s an all-new Porsche 911 for the 2012 model year, and every piece of sheet metal is different. But if you see it and know anything about cars, you’ll say “That’s a Porsche 911.” It’s new, yet familiar too. On purpose. It all started way back in 1963. After years of selling the “bathtub” 356 […]

Dynasty

Beginning in 1964 and running through 1975, the Bruins captured a record 10 national championships under Head Coach John Wooden, who also had four undefeated squads. In 1995, UCLA added an 11th banner with Jim Harrick at the helm. All […]
